I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Larry Kraiss, and the clinic staff.UofU Patient January 24, 2013
We felt like we could trust Dr. Kraiss completely, very impressed with his honesty and then he made a special effort to get the regular doctor's phone number so he could give his personal update. When we left we felt like he really cared about my Dad's condition. We had a follow up the next day with Dad's regular doctor and the doctor was very pleased that he had received a phone call from Dr. Kraiss about Dad's condition explaining all that we were told. We were very impressed by the way Dad was treated and he really felt like he could trust what Dr. Kraiss had told him.UofU Patient October 29, 2012
